Learn about this doctor

Care Philosophy

I understand that eye health is very important to the quality of one's life, and issues that effect the eye can be very frightening to the patient. This is why I strongly believe in spending as much time as the patient needs to full understand what their problems are, and what the best options are for dealing with their eye concerns. I believe in treating every patient the way I would like to be treated as a patient in a doctor's office, myself.Read more
